North Warwickshire Borough Council has partnered with AccessAble to create Access Guides for 80 venues across the borough.
The Guides are 100% facts, figures and photographs and give you loads of useful information to work out if somewhere is going to be accessible to you. They cover everything from parking to hearing loops, walking distances and accessible toilets.
We know everyone’s accessibility needs are different, which is why having detailed, accurate information is so important. It’s why all of the details you’ll find in this guide have been checked in person, by trained surveyors.
Some of the places you’ll find information to in the borough are; Coleshill Memorial Park, Atherstone Leisure Centre, Cole End Park Nature Reserve and lots more!
The Access Guides are totally free and available at www.AccessAble.co.uk and on the AccessAble App.
David Livermore, Director at AccessAble said:
‘We are so excited to have launched the accessibility guide to North Warwickshire and would really welcome feedback from disabled people and carers on its impact. We know that planning a trip out can often feel like a military operation and AccessAble is all about making going somewhere new easier. I would like to thank North Warwickshire Borough Council for their commitment and we really hope that we will be able to develop the guide in the future to cover more of what the borough has to offer.’
Councilor Margaret Bell, Chair of Community and Environment Board at North Warwickshire Borough Council said:
‘North Warwickshire Borough Council is determined to make the borough’s various facilities and amenities as accessible as possible to all our visitors and residents. We are, therefore, delighted to partner with Access Able to provide those that live, work in and visit the borough with an easy accessible guide to enable them to make the most out of their visit. We hope that this will be just the start of a journey to improving equality of access and enjoyment throughout the borough so that disability, in whatever form, is no longer a barrier to those people who visit, live or work in North Warwickshire’

The information to North Warwickshire joins over 300 venues within Warwickshire covered in partnership with Stratford-on-Avon District Council, Warwick District Council and Warwickshire County Council and over 125,000 places already covered across the UK, making www.AccessAble.co.uk a great tool for planning a day out or trip away.
